Calculating the jet quenching parameter.
Models of medium-induced radiative parton energy loss account for the strong suppression of high-p(T) hadron spectra in square root of (S)NN=200 GeV Au-Au collisions at BNL RHIC in terms of a single… Expand
The Condensed matter physics of QCD
Important progress in understanding the behavior of hadronic matter at high density has been achieved recently, by adapting the techniques of condensed matter theory. At asymptotic densities, the… Expand
Wilson loops in heavy ion collisions and their calculation in AdS/CFT
Expectation values of Wilson loops define the nonperturbative properties of the hot medium produced in heavy ion collisions that arise in the analysis of both radiative parton energy loss and… Expand
Gauge/String Duality, Hot QCD and Heavy Ion Collisions
Over the last decade, both experimental and theoretical advances have brought the need for strong coupling techniques in the analysis of deconfined QCD matter and heavy ion collisions to the… Expand
An AdS/CFT Calculation of Screening in a Hot Wind
One of the challenges in relating experimental measurements of the suppression in the number of J/\psi mesons produced in heavy ion collisions to lattice QCD calculations is that whereas the lattice… Expand
Anti-de sitter/conformal-field-theory calculation of screening in a hot wind.
One of the challenges in relating experimental measurements of the suppression in the number of J/psi mesons produced in heavy ion collisions to lattice QCD calculations is that whereas the lattice… Expand
QCD at finite baryon density: nucleon droplets and color superconductivity
Abstract We use a variational procedure to study finite density QCD in an approximation in which the interaction between quarks is modelled by that induced by instantons. We find that uniform states… Expand

Color flavor locking and chiral symmetry breaking in high density QCD
Abstract We propose a symmetry breaking scheme for QCD with three massless quarks at high baryon density wherein the color and flavor SU(3) color × SU(3) L × SU(3) R symmetries are broken down to the… Expand
Event-by-Event Fluctuations in Heavy Ion Collisions and the QCD Critical Point
The event-by-event fluctuations of suitably chosen observables in heavy ion collisions at CERN SPS, BNL RHIC, and CERN LHC can tell us about the thermodynamic properties of the hadronic system at… Expand
